Drop Liriano. I would rather start no one than Liriano.

I wouldn't pick up Bucholz. You look alright on starters without him.

Are you not playing Young at 3B? Or is he your 1B? Is there any good hitters on the WW to fill 1B or 3B? I think I would rather use an open SP spot to stream pitchers than pick up Buchholz.

There has to be a better starter available than Bucholz. He's been terrible, and I'm a Red Sox fan. Drop Liriano for someone else.

Not sure that you will get much at 3B with that combo. 3B is shallow enough that it is hard to get owners to trade any guys that would be an upgrade for you. I would rather move Young to 3B and look to get a 1B instead. Look around your league and see which teams have extra 1B and maybe you could get one of them at a cheaper price. Berkman might be a guy you could get cheaply with him being on the DL and all.
